The British Prime Minister Tony Blair's attack on Iran as a "strategic challenge" raises the rhetoric in a war of words between Iran and the West that is escalating with the possibility of a worse confrontation to come.
A good start: `escalating with the possibility of...worse...to come.' So escalating means `not decreasing' then?
Speaking on Iran's doorstep ...
...Mr Blair chose to single out Iran as he called for an "alliance of moderation in the region and outside of it to defeat the extremists".How could he single out Iran? What have they done to deserve that?
